A photograph of a drawing catalogued by Ruland (1876) as being then in the Uffizi, Florence. The drawing is a copy from a study by Raphael (c.1511-12) drawn on the recto of a sheet now in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (inv. no.WA1846.198r). The Oxford study is preparatory for the figure of the kneeling woman painted in the left foreground of Raphael's fresco of The Expulsion of Heliodorus from the Temple, executed in 1511-12 in the Stanza di Eliodoro in the Vatican.
